of virginia which president obama won in 2008 and where he holds a slim four-point lead over his republican rival. romney's visit to virginia comes on the heels of another disappointing jobs report which missed forecasts and showed a decline in the unemployment rate largely because more americans have stopped looking for work. it prompted the republican nominee to take aim at the president's record on job creation. >> with the unemployment level having stuck above 8% for 43 straight months, we remembered that the president promised that if we let him borrow almost $1 trillion, he'd never let it reach 8%. it's been above 8% ever since. this president has not fulfilled him promises. then he spoke at great length and had wonderful things to say at the democrat convention but didn't say what he would do to help people get jobs, come out of unemployment, or get people who are poor back to the middle class. he doesn't have a plan or ideas. we've got to make sure he doesn't have any more days in the white house after january. >> despite slow growth in the job market, president obama has widened hi

we have our calendar. i think of the united nations edition. on tuesday president obama will be addressing the u.n. on the second day of the general assembly. we will, of course, carry that live for you here on cnn. and on wednesday we have iran's president mahmoud ahmadinejad, he'll be addressing the u.n. you might remember his last time there it was pretty controversial. delegations from the u.s. and european nations actually walked right out. >>> on thursday we have benjamin netanyahu, the israeli prime minister. he'll be speaking at the u.n. he, of course, is feeling a real sense of urp jency regarding iran's nuclear program these days. he's certainly pushing president obama to set that red line on iran. he has a lot of concerns related to that. and on thursday as well, all eyes will be on iowa. that's where early voting begins just 40 days before the election. both the democrats and republicans can actually start filling out those absentee ballots in iowa. we've got much more ahead on "cnn sunday morning," which starts right now. -- captions by vitac -- www.vitac.co

"mitt romney took advantage of complex loopholes and tax shelters only available to those at the top." >> the romney campaign released a letter with numbers from the last 20 years of taxes, no returns, just a summary. basically it said that the romneys owed taxes for the last 20 years and averaged a rate of 20.2% and never paid below 13.66%. let's bring in paul steinhauser. good morning to you. why now? this is a late friday afternoon push out of these documents. what do you make of that? yeah, that's the traditional here in washington for so-called friday dump, if you want to hide a story, dump the documents or the news late on a friday because most people are moving ahead to the weekend, you won't get that much coverage. there may be something else here at play. maybe the timing is fortunate for mitt romney. maybe they wanted to get this out now because next week mitt romney i guess you'd call it a restart or buildup again, you're going to see mitt romney back on the campaign a lot more. this wo
